What can we learn when history repeats itself?

Director Niam Itani fled with her family from Beirut to Ghazzeh in 1989, seeking refuge from the Lebanese Civil War. Despite living in poverty, Itani describes her childhood years in Ghazzeh as ‘the best days of my life’, as families lived in solidarity. Connecting with Khalil, a young Syrian refugee in Ghazzeh in 2012, Itani has created a film of profound sensitivity, chronicling the effects of trauma past and present, and their shared hopes for the future.
